(Nov 20, 2012): Ry Cooder – The Very Thing That Makes You Rich

From the 1979 album, Bob Till You Drop.  This is Cooder’s cover album with Jim Keltner and David Lindley.  Today’s soulful tune was written by Sidney Bailey, a Memphis cabbie whose work was brought to Cooder by frequent collaborator Jim Dickinson.  The album itself has the distinction of being the first to be digitally recorded by a major label.  Cooder has said that some of the songs have a flatness because of the digital transfer.  I hear no flatness here.
